The Verney Carron Veloce is a 12 gauge lever release bolt action shotgun that provides fast followup shots ideal for hunting. Unfortunately I had an issue with the one I reviewed where the heavy loads cracked the forend, so I had to stop the review which was disappointing.

Ozzie, would be keen to see you do this same review for the Bushmeister BAX-12. Considering they're sub $1000 from Cleavers, and are almost an identical gun to this, it would be good to see you put it through its paces.
Given the performance of this, I personally don't think the Turks had to try all that hard to match the quality of what the Frogs have produced, but would be good to see this proved/disproved in a review.

Holy hell!!! $3500, as soon as I saw the thing I was like “that’d be in the Adler price range”.
It’s like with the Warwick’s almost $4k for a straight pull AR-15 style rifle, then you look at say a SPRINGFIELD ARMORY ST916556BMA, which is a semi-auto 5.56 AR style rifle it’s $1800. Man, it really sucks living in Nannyville.. I mean Australia.

Another down to earth review. I will stick to my Miroku mk70 sporter, knowing that it will function at all times.

I think I'll just stick with my Adler, I've put a slick kit in it and it cycles much smoother and faster than the veloce without any issues and hell you can cycle it with one finger that's how smooth it is.

I'd wager the popularity of these lever release, lever action, straight pull bolts is all compensation, as - sadly - the average Joe can't get his hands on a good pump or semi, so companies have to work out these ways to dance around the law and give us something technically legal

Thanks for being honest, it matters! Would an owner of this be in trouble if the firing pin was rusted in place, making it an open bolt thumb trigger gun?

I know someone that has one of these and has feeding problems where two shells exit the tube which causes the action to jam or drop a live shell on the ground. Also the rib has a bend in it. He's having it looked at by store and hopefully sending it back to the importer for rectification.

Hey Ozzie
You need to review the new cz 600 rifle, looks interesting a few reviews on YouTube.
The action looks interesting it’s like a hybrid semi controlled round feed
Thanks

I bought a Beretta shotgun new for $8k and the action actually seized closed after a box of ammo,
Beretta has never seen anything like it before. Yep whatever,
Needless to say I got a new firearm,
But stuff happens just remember to update us on the outcome of the warranty.

If that's cracking the forend with 2 3/4 shells I'd hate to see it with 3 inch magnum Shell's .. I'll stick to my under& over ...

My brother had a Mirouku formed crack a month or so out of warranty, no help at all. Had only done a couple of hunts over that period. Disgusting. Don’t rely on warranty, buy known quality.
